We are gearing up for this year's London Hong Kong Dragon Boat Race Festival on 3 June at the Royal Docks Adventure in East London! For the first time Chinese Welfare Trust is fielding a team of 20 paddlers to take part in races in the charity category.
It's our 10th anniversary this year and we'd like to mark it with a series of auspicious celebratory events, and the Dragon Boat Festival in London with international participants and lots of drumming is certainly one to go for! To make it extra special we have decided to fundraise for the first Chinese-speaking Admiral Nurse, a specialist nurse supporting people with dementia and their carers. We are proud to be teaming up with two national charities, Dementia UK and Chinese National Healthy Living Centre, to realise this project to bridge the current service gap within the UK Chinese community.

Our thanks go to this event's main sponsor, Shanghai Pudong Development Bank, which has also lent us 8 paddlers to field the team. Look out for 'Team CWT' on the day and hope to see many of you cheering for us on the side!
